It's Not Easy Being Peely!

Yesterday's field trip was awesome. The Milk House is really a big old white barn that is literally full of stuff! And...much to my surprise not everything was peely white!
Some things were peely pink...a dresser that I loved...made of the palest lightest pink. I didn't think to take a photo but this is really close to what the dresser looked like.




Some things were peely blue!




And some things weren't peely at all! My new pet! Not the pig...the seahorse! I needed this blue seahorse! I did!




More proof of my love for pink peely stuff...lol!




I bought two seashells...welk shells from the Atlantic Ocean...one for Den and one for Lucy. They both listened to the ocean!




See!




And I had to buy one peely white thing...it came from an old porch rail. It's now a candle holder!



There were also plants and trees and herbs to buy...in spite of our hot dry weather they were lovely. And of course there were amazing wagons and peely plant stands and old white bathtubs filled with flowers and arbors...amazing ones, of course!

It was actually a tiny bit overwhelming...I need to go back and see it again! But my friend Jane and I leisurely walked through and looked at stuff and chatted about it all. The displays are creative and fascinating. We found beautiful old things used in creative and unique ways...can you tell that I loved this place?

And my friend Jane knows about this stuff...she is a great collector. I mean I was looking at a basket filled with different shaped conical metal things...not a clue what they were...when Jane said...those are old garden hose nozzles! And now I want a basket filled with old garden hose nozzle things!

Who knew?

Happy Friday!

  6. Oh. You're a Shabby Chic kind of girl! I love that kind of style too. I've collected so much stuff, I had to stop--I ran out of room to house it all! Still love it though. Enjoy!

  11. Patty, I just love to shop at place like these...and love, the shabby chic look which I actually had in my other place...now, its more traditional.
    Love how you made a beautiful candle stick out of that lovely piece...or was it always, a candle stick?

    Wow! I think I caught up with your blog...somewhat!...but than again, you and a few others blog just about every day...or is it every day? Just can't even keep up with my own blog, yet alone, with favorites...never mind the others, I'm sure they all dropped me by now. Sorry abt. not being able to stop by every day!
